I’m a PhD student in economics. My research fields are development microeconomics, political economy, and spatial economics. My current work focuses on economic geography and agricultural development in Sub-Saharan Africa. Another research focuses on conflicts, insurgency, and terrorism in the developing world, theoretically and empirically.
I hold B.S. in agriculture from Hokkaido University and M.Phil. in economics from the University of Tokyo. Prior to joining Brown, I worked in Delhi for a project lead by Japanese scholars to understand informality and preference heterogeneity of micro and small scale enterprises.
